Let's admit it: It's fun to watch the train wreck as deplorables begin eating their own

When you find yourself siding with one GOP deplorable over another, catch yourself. Because, as captivating as it is to watch a rodent eat its own, reading how Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene attacks South Carolina Rep. Nancy Mace over racist and Islamophobic comments from the truly detestable Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert, you have to wonder how low these disgusting folks can go.

In a now-deleted tweet, Greene launched the first shot to Mace for condemning Boebert, following a now-viral video of Boebert “joking” that Omar was a terrorist and member of the “jihad squad.”

“I looked to my left, and there she is, Ilhan Omar. And I said, ‘Well, she does not have a backpack—we should be OK.’” The audience laughed raucously. Omar has denied the incident Boebert described ever took place.

“I have time after time condemned my colleagues on both sides of the aisle for racist tropes and remarks that I find disgusting, and this is no different than any others,” Mace said during an interview on CNN.

1. When has there ever been a racist comment made by a Dem

That Mace claims to have called out? I hear only one “side of the aisle” making such comments.

2. There hasn't been.

Ticks me off that the media never follows up asking "what Democratic congressperson has done x? - name 1 since you said 'both sides'.

6. The answer to the follow up would cite the incident for which Rep. Omar apologized.

"Anti-Semitism is real," Omar tweeted Monday afternoon, "and I am grateful for Jewish allies and colleagues who are educating me on the painful history of anti-Semitic tropes."

She added, "We have to always be willing to step back and think through criticism, just as I expect people to hear me when others attack me for my identity. This is why I unequivocally apologize."

4. At some point

with all of the claims the GOP makes about being the "party of values" you would think it would dawn on someone that screeching morons like Boebert and Taylor-Greene don't help them with that image.

And I have to agree, when did Mace ever condemn a Democrat for a racist trope?

I can't really decide whether these deplorables need to be kicked out and sent to prison for their role in January 6th, and I'm sure there's a mountain of evidence for their involvement in that, or whether having them around boosts the Democrat's chances for keeping control of Congress in 2022. Because if that happens, and I happen to think that Democrats are going to surprise themselves by how many more members they wind up having in both houses, they will owe a great deal to the despicable ugliness that Taylor Greene and Boebert, Gosar and Senators Cruz and Hawley, have exhibited.
